15 August 2017 - Theatre N16

A thought-provoking idea reflected in an inspired ending, coupled with authentic playing and fine music justify a visit, but the play as a whole feels rather thin on detail.

2 star rating for this show

13 August 2017 - The Water Rats Theatre Bar

Piling slapstick buffoonery on top of an absurdly farcical story proves merely wearisomely ill-conceived and comedically unsatisfying.

A glitzy, slick endeavour which embodies enough comedy to make for a fun and appealingly entertaining evening.

9 August 2017 - King's Head Theatre

Well-cast and earnestly acted, this is a sombre but highly watchable and thought-provoking drama offering, primarily, an unusual perspective on the wider impact of mental illness.

5 star rating for this show

8 August 2017 - Iris Theatre

Daniel Winder's fun and compelling adaptation of this terrific fairy tale gets a wonderfully magical treatment from director Amy Draper, with gusto performances from a fine cast.
